In this paper, we describe our system for the 2009 CoNLL shared task for joint parsing of syntactic and semantic dependency structures of multiple languages. Our system combines and implements efficient parsing techniques to get a high accuracy as well as very good pars- ing and training time. For the applications of syntactic and semantic parsing, the pars- ing time and memory footprint are very im- portant. We think that also the development of systems can profit from this since one can per- form more experiments in the given time. For the subtask of syntactic dependency parsing, we could reach the second place with an ac- curacy in average of 85.68 which is only 0.09 points behind the first ranked system. For this task, our system has the highest accuracy for English with 89.88, German ...
